Where to look for childcare both on- and off-campus.
On-campus child care
Concordia has two daycares on its campuses, one downtown and one at Loyola. Please note that these are not affiliated with the Concordia Student Parents Centre and you must contact them directly for information.
Concordia’s Observation Nursery
Concordia’s Observation Nursery is a place where young children can develop independent skills in a secure and nurturing atmosphere, full of interesting and stimulating materials to explore.
The program is designed for 3-4 year olds, but younger or loder participants maybe eligible. Enrolment is on a first-come basis.
The Observation Nursery is located on the 1st floor, Room GA-1.125 of Concordia's Grey Nuns Annex Building. It includes a nursery room, an observation room and a parent seminar room.
